What shall we do?

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 19, 2009, 8:35 AM

:fella: Journal
Now, it's been kinda dead here for the last weeks, so I thought I'd ask you about what you want. What do you want? :)
And, is there anybody out there who want to write a little review/"my thoughts", like the one further down? (HVL-F56AM external flash) :)

41010 and Kvekke

:fella: HVL-F56AM external flash
If you want to say anything about a product you've tried or own, send us a note, and we'll give you a go at this the next time we update the journal! ^^ This is not supposed to be a professional announcement or reviwe, it's just some few words, making co-Alpha-shooters aware of the product and it's advantages/disadvantage :)

:fella: :pointr: HVL-F56AM external flash, by 41010

When I bought my first DSLR, the Alpha 100, I though "wtf? External flash? I don't need that!", couldn't be more wrong...

Having a simple external flash like the HVL-F56AM is great! Its way better than our built-in flash, you’re able to play with the shadows, since its wireless and we don't get the annoying shadow from the sunshade-thing.

If you haven’t tried it you might think “how and what do I do if I’m shooting with my lens on 18mm VS 70mm, e.g., do I have to change something to get the right light?” Nopes, the thing thinks itself, and by reading some fancy information, it knows whether you’re at 18 or 70mm, and reduce/increases whatever it has to reduce/increase to get a perfect shot.

I also mentioned that the flash is wireless, and this is true, however, I don’t know how far away it stays wireless, but I’ve manage to have it 10 meters away from my camera when shooting, and it went off, and I really don’t think you need more then that anyway :roll:
You’re also able to shoot with both your built-in flash and the external, if wanted, and that’s always fun :)

In some cases, the flash is a bit strong, usually at 18mm, and if you have that problem, you can A) increase/reduce the angle of the flash, 45-90° or B) you can reduce the light through the menu.

So, conclusion: A must have item! You’ll see that photographing with this by your side, or on your camera, for that matter, is something totally different!

If you do have any questions or something along that line, I’ll try my best to answer them!

:fella: More journal!
This can be used as a feature-field, or just more journal...:roll:

In case of featuring, thumbs goes here
